International aid plan for the world textile industry
The International Labour Organization (ILO), an agency of the United Nations, has called on retailers, producers, governments, banks, associations, trade unions and leading brand suppliers to work together to support workers in the garment industry affected by the Covid 19 pandemic worldwide.
The ILO intends to convene an international working group, coordinated by the International Organization of Employers (IOE) and the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC). The aim is to develop a sustainable system to guide the textile industry worldwide through the Corona crisis and to safeguard the health, income and jobs of workers. These plans require the immediate commitment of all those involved, the ILO emphasizes.
